I don't know what has been said before, but in this instance I didn't think he was saying that carbs never bloat anyone: just that bloating can also be caused by dietary fat. The OP was talking about "bloat" around her thighs anyway - I've never heard of carbs causing that. If I eat too many carbs I do retain water, but it's all in the hips.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
